    Competition Funded PhD Project (Students Worldwide)

Project Description

A PhD position is available in the field of Materials Chemistry. This project is in competition with other projects offered by the School of Physical Sciences for one of a number of Vice Chancellor’s PhD Studentships.

Magnetoelectric materials continue to attract extensive research attention due to their potential in applications such as sensors, transducers, actuators and next generation memory devices. Ferrotoroidic materials are expected to play a key role in these technologies. However there are currently few ferrotoroidal materials known. The project aims to investigate novel design protocols for the synthesis of new ferrotoroidal materials and characterise their magnetoelectric properties.

The successful candidate will be based at the University of Kent’s main campus in Canterbury and work under the supervision of Dr Donna Arnold (Kent).

This PhD Studentship is due to start in September 2019.


Contact: For further information or informal enquiries, please contact Dr Donna Arnold at .
